A poem about life and what I believe. I hope you enjoy this poem.

My Family

My Family

Can there be a good place for me?
As a child, yes...things have changed.
The beauties of my life have been taught me now.
The ways I now know of greatness, honesty and truth.
I was so proud of the things I was taught.
Right was right. Wrong was wrong.
Strength and pride taught to me.
Past relatives were strong, hard working and proud.
I knew I could live all my life being proud because of this.
I was strong believing in these virtues.
I was strong, young and so happy to be part of this,
my family.
